So far, the only confirmed news about the soon-to-be-launched model is the fact that it will obviously sport the most hardcore version of the AMG-tuned V12 and be a tad bit more exclusive than the already exclusive S63.
The peeps from Mercedes-Benz Passion insist they know that the new AMG sedan will offer 630 hp and an electronically limited torque of 1000 Nm (737 lb/ft). Other bits of info from the same source state that the S65 will finally switch to the MCT 7 G-tronic transmission, which has proved on the G65 AMG model that it can now handle (part of) the Earth-moving torque figure.
We say “part of”, because, as some of you AMG aficionados already know, the six-liter twin-turbo V12 by AMG actually develops 1200 Nm (885 lb/ft) and has been electronically restricted for the reason of being too insane for a rear-wheel drive car. The 4-Matic all-wheel drive system hasn't been confirmed for the 65 AMG, but it would prove to be a really nice surprise. We will have to wait until a January 2014 unveil to see the real thing.
